Call Vice Mayor Martha Castex-Tatum's Office and Demand that Houston End Homeless Feeding Bans
In Houston, Texas, there are anti-homeless feeding bans that prevent citizens from donating food to more than five individuals. The Coalition for the Homeless Houston recorded 3,567 homeless residents in Harris County, of which 1,515 were living on the streets rather than in shelters. Although people can still donate basic necessities such as blankets, clothes, and hygiene products, it is inconsiderate to the homeless population who rely on other citizens to obtain free food.
